About the recipe and the restaurant:
A Hogtown twist on Pawleys Island Palmetto Pimiento, the true Southern Caviar.
Featured fondly in our sandwich memories, this lunch spot was located in the
plaza with Lloyd Clark Sports from 2010- 2015. A chalkboard list of local food sources
and a network of like-minded entrepreneurs earned this restaurant many devoted fans.
